ISKL encourages students to develop skills, knowledge, and consideration to make the world a better environment where we all can live.  School-wide practices accomplish this through service-learning and environmental awareness programs incorporating various initiatives and activities.  The development of daily habits, both in and out of school, helps students to investigate sustainability issues, understand alternative perspectives, and translate ideas and findings into action.

Service learning and environmental education are integrated into our curriculum so that each student develops an understanding of the importance of active community involvement, and learns the skills needed to take action and make positive changes in the world around them.

Sustainability at ISKL

We would like to congratulate the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL) for the efforts and time dedicated to turning your school into a greener place. The whole school is built to reduce the impact on the environment. All school activities (clubs, sports, community work, indoors, outdoors, etc) are linked to their eco-program... The school is an Eco-School Model for other International schools to follow and learn. They are a showcase of the benefits of the eco-school program.

Eco-School Assessors

The Eco-Schools Programme is coordinated by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) in Malaysia. It is the largest sustainable school program in the world, with 52,000 schools registered in the program in 67 countries.

ISKL is a member of the Eco-Schools Organization and was the first school in Malaysia to receive both the internationally acclaimed Green Flag Award in 2013 for excellence in environmental action and learning as well as Malaysia’s Green Building Index platinum rating for sustainable design.

Living ethically is an ISKL initiative for all community members to demonstrate personal and social responsibility in the care and working conditions for ourselves and others.  Sustainability clubs include The Earth Club, Green Council and Gardening Club, all aiming to create awareness and change throughout the school.  Alongside these projects sit organized events and activities implementing strategies to reduce energy consumption and resource waste.     

The Development Fund is a culmination of projects that incorporate the Jungle Walls at the school entrances, Jungle Trees in the Coaches Garden and the Community Edible Garden.  Across all three divisions of ISKL, the teaching and learning focus leans towards supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  These collectively provide inspiration for teacher/student-led future initiatives focusing on encouraging and empowering students to adopt a positive perspective, with an international mindset, whilst collaborating towards shared sustainability goals.

ISKL Green Flag Accreditation 2022

Recently, we were rewarded with the Green Flag Award in recognition of ISKL’s environmental achievements. Before we received the award, inspectors from the Eco-Schools paid a visit to our campus and observed the steps we take towards improvement in environmental action.  Check out this video to check how it went down!
